Bottom Brook Cottages
Reviewed 21 June 2014

We have just stayed at Bottom Brook for two nights (June 19th and 20th). Cooked all meals at home with ease. Kitchen well equipped; even has lobster crackers, an essential for us who wish to indulge in home cooked delicacy! While the kitchen has been referred to as small by another reviewer, we found it charming and simply moved the table into the living room for meal time using the table for prep prior to. The cabins are exceptionally clean, beds very comfortable, shower is excellent. The delightful brook running below all of the cabins is a wonderful feature. We took owner Norm's suggestion and checked out Earle's bakery for fresh baked buns, bread and treats and then found a terrific Newfoundland book and music selection to boot. We also ran into Norm at the Ocean View hotel lounge next door where a 'Kitchen Party' was held (traditional Newfoundland music and get together). There, he and his friends shared history and stories from the area; we loved it! Great location. HIghly recommend

Room Tip: Ask for the front cabin if you can; it has the best view.

Thanks for taking the time to write this great review! As I said in a previous response the nicest thing that I enjoy about our business is meeting nice people and you guys were certainly no exception! My wife and I were delighted to hear you enjoyed our establishment and got to experience some fine things that Gros Morne has to offer. Every year we have our year end social for Gros Morne Academy at the Ocean View Motel (lovely steak) followed by a kitchen party with local musician Dave Shears. Dave played in a local band for years travelling the Great Northern Peninsula and has many songs and stories to tell from our area. Glad we got to share some local folklore at the Anchor Pub with you!

Indeed these cottages are more like homes than just for a day's or week's stay. Right above a lively creek, or as they call it a brook. A meadow on the opposite side. Priced very competitively. Owners, local teachers, most helpful.
Recommended wholeheartedly !

Thank you for the time to write this great review. As a boy growing up in Rocky Harbour I caught many trout in Bottom Brook while watching our cattle in that meadow! Today many young kids still catch trout in that same brook beside our cottages. My wife and I work hard to keep up our cottages to a standard that is suitable for visitors to Rocky Harbour and the Gros Morne National Park. We were both very proud that you enjoyed our establishnment and got to enjoy beautiful Gros Morne National Park. We hope to see you again some day.

This place was so tight to navigate. We bumped into the table getting thru the front door - the kitchen counter was about six inches on each side of the stove. Might be okay for a back-packer or someone just looking for a place to crash overnight, but if you plan to stay longer and do any meal preparation, forget it! Stove was rusty and every spare inch of cupboard space was taken up with their dishes, pots/pans, etc. Wall in bathroom was coming apart. Beds seemed okay but no room to get around the bed to the closet. "Living room" consisted of one couch and a small table with a tiny television set - nothing to set anything on, bare minimum. We stayed about 10 minutes and then booked elsewhere for our 10 day stay.

The cottage was good value for the money, very clean & well equipped for self catering, we are not ones for eating 3 meals a day out when on vacation, so it is nice to have one main meal a day out & prepare the others in the cabin. Would recommend to others any day. The owner was very helpful and was very conversed in the area. WELL DONE

These cottages were so cozy, clean, and comfortable! The beds were great and the cottage was the perfect size (for us, a mom and daughter travelling together). We picked up some groceries in Deer Lake to cook our own food while on site, and we particularly enjoyed using the barbeque. Rocky Harbour is well situated within the park for exploring nearby trails. The view was amazing too (great sunsets!). This was a perfect start to our road trip, and we highly recommend it!

My friend and I spent 3 nights in one of the cottages and enjoyed our stay immensely. Sue was a great help whenever we had a question. The cottage was comfortable and well equiped for cooking in the kitchen or grilling outside. (She warned us to bring our food from a larger city as not much is available in Rocky Harbour. Good advice!) The laundry came in handy as well. The babbling brook just outside lulled me to sleep through the open window. What a beautiful place to relax after a day of sightseeing or hiking. Highly recommend even if you don't want to use the kitchen.

Room Tip: Cottage #1 is closer to the street noise, but in this small village that probably doesn't matter...

My husband and I stayed at the Bottom Brook Cottages for 2 nights for our anniversary/vacation. We had a wonderful stay and Norm and Sue were great. The cottages was spotlessly clean and had very comfortable beds. We too enjoyed the brook that ran beside the cottage. We went to the Anchors Aweigh Show which was in walking distance of the cottages and had one of the best times ever. Cant wait to go again There were lots of choices when we booked at Rocky Harbour and we are so happy we chose Bottom Brook.

Thanks for your wonderful review! We were glad that you chose Bottom Brook Cottages for your anniversary/vacation and got to meet you. Most of our guest at Bottom Brook Cottages usually fall in one of two categories, stayed before or had friends that stayed before. This repeat business and referrals by a friend or colleague certainly makes us feel good about our business!
